Needs A Giant Red Bull Can

1977 Austin Mini Pimlico

At first glance, we thought this Mini was indeed an old Suzuki X90, which was frequently used as a Red Bull promotional vehicle, with a giant can sitting on the rear deck. Heck, even the colors are right!

Alas, it’s a UK-market rebodied Mini, mercifully with a┬ádual-carb 1275 so it has some hope of performance. It needs help, though – the fiberglass body is cracked in places, and the interior is rough. Those modern racing-inspired seats are all wrong – the shoulder bolsters are too wide to fit in the car!

It’s on eBay near Atlanta with reserve not yet met.1977 Austin Mini Pimlico engine 1977 Austin Mini Pimlico interior 1977 Austin Mini Pimlico blue silver rear quarter 1977 Austin Mini Pimlico blue silver profile
